Business was "back to usual" for the 1936 Boones and for the Philadelphia Mint issue 12,012 specimens were distributed to the numismatic community, making the 1936 Boone the highest mintage of 1934-1938 Boone commemorative series. As might be expected, the 1936 is the easiest Boone to find in MS63 to MS57 condition, though the the 1937 is virtually identical in availability. Most 1936 Boones have frosty to satin-like luster and excellent eye appeal.
